They are technically "3D", but with the lack of a free-range camera, it does have a more overhead platform style of gameplay.

Relic made rather modest gains on Homeworld:Cataclysm and Homeworld 2 compared to the original game in the series, making the possibility of a Homeworld 3 rather unlikely in the near future.

Now for my opinion: I love the space battles, especially since they are styled ala Battlefront II. After playing BFII, I was wishing for a RTS version and immediately homed in on EAW. My only big complaint is that the unit balancing is WAAAY off. I think the rebellion units are far too powerful compared to their Imperial counterparts.
